Thumbs up Re: Why Are they Shooting Sharks in Australia ?

Birds are similar.
Why not sharks?

Perhaps there aren't more attacks - just more honest reporting of the attacks...
Vic Hislop reckons that many shark attack victims were falsely reported so as to not deter tourism...

"They're primary food, seals: 4 limbs, check; large fatty white under belly, check; Air breathing mammals, check; swims at the surface, check; Tastes like chicken, you betcha." nice one!

Please don't quote Vic Hislop as an authority. Although I have no doubt nor question his ability to catch and kill sharks he has spent his life trying to make his living baiting to kill sharks and displaying the gore for money.

His observations of sharks are also from the surface not in the water with them. If you have a shark to be killed because of a recent shark attack he will gladly be paid to come and kill it.

I hope you are not a mate of his
